Liverpool Drop Out of the Champions League: What Next?

Liverpool Drop Out of the Champions League: What Next?

As painful and frustrating as it was to watch against Basel, the Liverpool manager, players and fans have come to the conclusion that we just weren't good enough. There were a couple of poor decisions that went against us on Tuesday, but overall, it was the performance over the six games that cost us, not just one. The first half performance was strange in the sense that we needed to see so much in terms of urgency, yet the setup …
Blind-siding Euphoria | Liverpool FC

Blind-siding Euphoria | Liverpool FC

Euphoria was high. A young vibrant coach, from the school of Mourinho Man Management, along side a few other managers in Europe, joins in the tide of apparent change. A new generation of managers to succeed the old guard at clubs of reputations mimicking crumbling empires that hold sway the believe of capturing past glories. Coming up as runner-ups were always held in disdain for these reputations, flag bearers will only want to expect on winning the league, nothing less. …
Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Brendan the Brave or The Cowardly Lion?

Liverpool fans finally enjoyed a weekend of football after Glen Johnson’s late winner against Stoke at Anfield. It was a much needed three points and relieved some of the pressure mounting on Brendan Rodgers. Rodgers has faced criticism from all directions including many fans who have questioned his tactics and team selections. Over the past few weeks fans have taken to social media to label Rodgers a coward and to show some balls. So what does Rodgers need to do …
Winning Goal To Boost Confidence of Johnson and the team?

Winning Goal To Boost Confidence of Johnson and the team?

A single goal can do wondrous things. They can win you a final, a league title, instil confidence, or in our case, the relief of ending a losing streak. A goal can also get critics off your back. Glen Johnson has had a lot of criticism over the past few months for different reasons, including being out of position leading to key goals conceded, as well as losing possession etc. Unfortunately, you would have to have lived under a rock …

Tis the season to be Jolly? | Liverpool FC

Dear To Santa, It’s that time of year again. I don’t want a 54 convertible in light blue or any colour. I realise last season you tried your best, but obviously sorting Eartha Kitt and her ridiculous Christmas list out took it out of you. So my list is even smaller this year. It shouldn’t even be considered a list. Top 4 please. Daniel Sturridge to become a real man instead of biscuit based. Glen Johnson to never play for …
Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

Brendan Rodgers: On Thin Ice

The weekend saw Liverpool's run of abject form continue, as they slumped to a fourth consecutive defeat, further extending their winless run in the Premier League. Not since an injury time own goal spared the Reds' blushes at Loftus Road on 19th October, have Liverpool recorded three points. In fact, a last gasp home win over Swansea, in the Capital One Cup, continues to be the Anfield side's only victory in the last seven - a run which has witnessed …

"I've got 99 Problems but White Teeth Ain't 1" | Brendan Rodgers

Okay, maybe 99 is a bit of an over-exaggeration but Brendan is in a bit of a pickle, one which, if we’re honest, is of his own making. He has just embarked on a spending spree that the likes of Jose Mourinho or Manuel Pellegrini would be proud of. You can say that we recouped a large proportion of our outlay from the Luis Suarez sale but apart from Mario Balotelli, who have we brought in that we wouldn’t have …
The Glen Johnson Masterclass

The Glen Johnson Masterclass

In 2009 Liverpool paid 17 million pounds for 25-year-old right-back Glen Johnson. Since then he has been a constant in the Liverpool backline. A constant when he hasn’t been injured that is. It was a hell of a lot of money at the time to pay for a right-back who was famously Roman Abramovich’s first acquisition and flop of his Chelsea reign. He had however, reinvigorated his career at Portsmouth and had been brought in by Benitez because in his …
God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

God is a Red - Robbie Fowler | Strikers Week on AnfieldIndex!

"It doesn't matter what you do, we've got God on our side", a fairly common retort from a Liverpool fan in the mid to late nineties. No matter who you were bantering with, which one of your mates' sides LFC were facing that week - United, Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle, even Sheffield Wednesday at the time - it wasn't important, because we had God, and He was gonna win it for us. And, more often than not, He did! A shining …
Jari Litmanen - A Liverpool King Never Crowned

Jari Litmanen - A Liverpool King Never Crowned

As someone who was brought up watching and playing a sport other than association football, I needed some convincing. Jari Litmanen (and Rogerio Ceni) convinced me. For a long time rugby league was the only sport worth the time of day in that town. Lodged in no man’s land between two of the world’s biggest football cities, the battle lines were drawn, whilst a few Everton and Manchester City fans looked on from the side. Games of three-and-in, wállie, Wembley, …
